    Just finished Penguin Quilt

    This is my latest quilt - I really enjoyed this pattern from Lisa Moore (you can google for her website). The backing was a stripe fabric - and I won't be choosing stripes for that any more. A lot of work to get it straight.

    Love it, love the free standing shadow-box effect, love penguins. I'll bet you did great on the backing also.

    I love the floating movement look. Great job. Thank you for sharing.
    Desiderata (Max Ehrmann) - Walk placidly amid the noise and haste and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.

    I tried to add a picture of the back, but it took to long to load and my time was up for editing my post...

    Cool! They look like big ice cubes. I bought that fabric for OBW but I haven't started it yet. There is super cool quilt pattern in the new Apr/MayQuilt magazine that is 2 different maze blocks. I added it to my bucket list also. I wish these designers would slow down on their neat pattern production, I can only sew so fast!
